Trinity Laban Alumni in Sadler’s Wells’ Autumn SeasonFri 13 October 2017
This November, Curator and Trinity Laban alumnus Gianluca Vincentini will be presenting work at Sadler’s Wells as part of their Wild Card series, which brings fresh perspectives from a new generation of dance makers curating special evenings. Vincentini will introduce his company Möbius Dance – featuring dance alumna Stefania Pinato (pictured) – and introduce other promising dance talent such as Jamaal Burkmar, winner of the New Adventures’ Choreographer Award.
In fact, this autumn Sadler’s Wells has been home to several Trinity Laban dance alumni. BA graduate James Pett was one of the 10 dancers premiering visionary choreographer and Professor of Choreography at Trinity Laban Wayne McGregor’s bold and intimate Autobiography in October. The Guardian heralded the dancing, inspired by McGregor’s own genome sequencing, as ‘mesmerizingly good’ whilst the Telegraph agreed the company was on ‘’absolutely firecracker form”.
As part of another award-winning dance company, BalletBoyz, alumnus Matthew Sandiford performed in Fourteen Days, an exciting quartet of new works playing with the concept of balance and imbalance. Created in only two weeks, the show featured pieces by choreographers Javier de Frutos, Craig Revel Horwood, Iván Pérez and Christopher Wheeldon who teamed up with composers Scott Walker, Charlotte Harding, Joby Talbot and Keaton Henson.
And that’s not end of the Trinity Laban alumni who are represented at Sadler’s Wells this season. Don’t forget to see alumnus Sir Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella this Christmas, forming part New Adventure’s 30th anniversary celebrations.
